In my opinion there is no amount of empirical evidence that you can provide that will convince me that drugs have not decimated my neighborhood. This shit kills, dead ass, it is immensely destructive beyond what the numbers are able to capture.

Now, Law school students should know better and for every SLS student that is a regular pot smoker, there are where am from, maybe 10 ppl that could have been SLS students save for weed, drugs.

It is less harmful than alcohol? You have to be kidding or rich enough to dampen the real effects that weed has on the overall trajectory of a person's life. If you are destined for success then maybe it doesn't matter but for those who have no option but to fight for this illusive American dream it really fucks up everything. I have seen it happen at least 5 times.

If you are Law school student, quit that shit!

Marijuana threads are probably the easiest to troll. I'd say even easier than affirmative action threads.

I was going to ask your gender, but I'm pretty sure I'm turned on regardless of the answer.

I dont get it. My post has been met with 'drivel' 'confused looks', am I out of touch or wats going on?

Not one person has backed me up yet when I say this in the mist of my family or people in general they seem to agree. So, either you guys are refusing to acknowledge the substance of my argument for some reason, or my logic is completely off.

Either way I expected some dissent but this dismissive reaction really puzzled me? Maybe I dont communicate as well I think I do or maybe this is a segment of the population that is not receptive to those kind of arguments.

I still believe 'weed' is one of the most destructive substances out there, and it should continue to be illegal.

Just to address the comparison to the prohibition era, I think if it were comparable then drugs would have already been legalized. The prohibition era prove itself an unsustainable policy by the eventual decision to end the era. I don't think the legalization of drugs could hold comparable sway.

It takes a lot of wide spread support to pass an amendment, if the legalization of drugs enjoyed the support 21st Amendment had then it would already be law. Prohibition only lasted 13yrs and it was obvious to everyone that it was unsustainable, this is not the case with drugs. Failing to see the difference in arguments for prohibition v. criminalization of weed does not mean that a difference between them don't exist.

The population at large clearly sees a difference between both substances and its not a baseless belief. You couldn't even attempt to pass a constitutional amendment for the legalization of drugs right now, just to further emphasize the differences in these substances. And the reasons for this cannot always be clearly articulated, I tried.

I really hope you're trolling. This is even more ridiculous than your last post.

is what makes it seem like you are, since there is a lot of shit that is a lot more destructive than weed.

Why would I troll an already hyper-emotional subject? That is unnecessary. If I wanted to see ppl go at it, I would just read.

Generally when people make bunches of long posts even though they are completely ill-informed with regards to the subject at hand, they're trolling.

But now I'm 100% convinced that this is not just trolling, it's some of the best trolling I've seen on TLS in recent memory.

as long as people can functin in society then let them do what they want. If its illegal, then they know the risks. Who cares what the person does in their own home, as long as it doesnt hurt the community or members of their household. If they cant get their act together, then they get what they deserved. If you can function- get a job, hold the job, and contribute to society- then do what you want. who really cares? its up to them. If they mess their lives up and die and early death- well darwin wins.

This is the problem. You 'believe' it is the most destructive without providing any facts about it. You also say you know at least 5 people who have ruined their lives over it. I can say I know at least 10 people who smoke responsibly and lead successful lives.
